Yuck!! Their greed for profits means their hotel rooms will be disgusting. Screw you guests, we want more money!

Anyone with an ounce of dignity will not set foot in there.

Posted in: What do you think is Russian President Vladimir Putin's endgame following the Russian attack on Ukraine? See in context

His end game is a reciprocal deal with China to invade Japan. China from the south, Russia from the north. Lots of old scores to settle. Remember, he even referenced being snubbed by Bill Clinton. I so want to be proved wrong.

Xi is watching the world’s reaction to the Ukraine invasion, sizing up his chance to seize Taiwan. He won’t stop there.

Give me one plausible motive that a private equity firm has in willingly reducing their income by pulling their music from Spotify.

you think the ridiculously tiny amount of money that Spotify gives artists means a damn to a massive private equity firm? They’re probably counting on sales of the artists’ content to pick up in other markets as a result, thereby actually increasing their income. Come on, use your brain man!

Posted in: U.S. special forces launch raid in Syria; civilians also reported dead See in context

It was deemed a success because no Americans were killed. Women and children died, probably innocent civilians too. More terror from the greatest war mongers the world has seen.

Posted in: Vietnamese trainee in Japan demands apology for 2 years of abuse See in context

in the process of negotiating a settlement

and

hope he gets plenty of money

why is it just about money?! Shouldn’t it be about pressing charges against individuals for physical assault, charges against the company for providing an environment for that assault and most likely exploitation of trainees?!

why does throwing money at a problem or issue seem to be the first and often only reaction?!

“I’m a foreigner living in Japan and I can’t behave like I do at home! Wah wah!”

simple safety measures to help protect your community, such as masks and distancing and this one, and seppoes lose their bowels!

Societies that don’t worship guns seem to be very stabby. What the hell?! If you pick up a knife to attack another person, you are stepping over a line that separates rationality and murderous intent.

Guaranteed the locals are not the slightest mask-averse. As opposed to a possibly large percentage of the Americans who will not wear masks, the least that decent people can do.

Japan is just another Asian country when it comes to things like political corruption and driving. Rules are advisory.

Posted in: Gov't to dispose of unused Abenomasks amid growing costs See in context

the intended purpose (of the cloth masks) has been achieved," 

that purpose being to appear to be addressing the serious issue of a pandemic buying doing the lamest thing possible. In the country of daily mask wearing, regardless of pandemics, the ‘leader’ offers up this travesty, this paragon of ineptitude. Then we pay for the storage of this white elephant. Now we’re paying for the disposal of it. All this does is confirm the fact that politicians are the lowest elements, the least capable, the worst representatives of our society.

Posted in: Suspect in Osaka clinic fire may have copied animation studio arson See in context

I blame the media (again!) for their ultra detailed explanations of exactly how the suspect did it. With their usual scale models of the crime scene, breathless wall to wall coverage, excavations of every tiniest detail. Not because it’s in the public’s interest, but because bad news sells, and gets eyeballs on screens. Capitalism at its worst

It’s too late to review and change the building lax building codes in the hundreds of thousands of office buildings in Osaka. Go after the developers, designers, etc.

Posted in: How crowded is Kyoto now without international tourists? See in context

I’ve visited all of these places many times, and observed that 99% of the tourists were locals. I think the reason there aren’t a lot of people in these photos is not just that foreign tourists are not there, but local tourists have refrained from going as well.

Well, I never thought I would ever agree with any Komeito ideas. Sounds like fair thing though

"As the birth rate declines and the population ages, we will need to put more resources toward social security and education," Natsuo Yamaguchi said in a group interview. "The public will not accept it if only defense spending suddenly doubles."

Posted in: In Japan, parents still must single-handedly shoulder all responsibility for raising children. Our country’s philosophy and basic approach toward child rearing are wrong. See in context

What rubbish. Elementary school teachers do so much heavy lifting. And nursery school teachers for that matter. A lot of the elementary school teachers I know tell me that parents expect them to teach their children everything! And a lot of parents I know are lazy enough to leave the teaching about life aspects to teachers.
